General Note/Comment

  • Two audio cassettes. Two recordings of the 1985 Suwannee River Jamboree homecoming held at the Stephen Foster State Cultural Center. These recordings were made to broadcast on radio programs. Between 1952 and 1959, the Suwannee River Jamboree radio show -- broadcast from Live Oak, Florida on WNER -- was Florida's largest and best known country music show. It was broadcast live three hours every Saturday night, with 30-minute versions syndicated across the Southeast. The show featured many North Florida and Southeast acts such as the Stanley Brothers. The concert in these recordings was held in 1985 as a homecoming for the original radio series, and included several local bluegrass bands. A similar jamboree was held the previous year (for images see S 1577, Volume 24, S85-1311 - S85-1330.)
